People from across Europe and beyond are drawn to buy homes on the Costa del Sol and even move here permanently, but when they think of Marbella it is usually the beachfront areas, leafy residential suburbs surrounding golf courses and private country clubs they picture. For this reason, the bulk of those who buy property in Marbella look for apartments, penthouses and villas for sale in Sierra Blanca, Nueva Andalucía, La Quinta, Los Arqueros, Guadalmina, El Madroñal, La Zagaleta, Río Real, Los Monteros and similar residential resort areas of the Costa del Sol.
With the exception of the Golden Mile, the famous palm-fringed avenue that connects Marbella and Puerto Banús, Marbella town seldom features – except among those in the know. While we all love the centre for its shops, restaurants, cafés, elegant beachside promenade, leafy squares and the atmospheric old town, few think of it as a place to look for a property. Locals, well-informed Spanish buyers from places such as Madrid, and the foreigners very familiar with this area, however, find it one of the most attractive parts of Marbella, rich in variety and lifestyle options.
Discover an exciting lifestyle option
Central Marbella is a compact sized town that extends on either side of the main Ricardo Soriano Avenue, reaching the exclusive Golden Mile on the west side and the Severo Ochoa Avenue on the east. Within it there is an exciting variety of residential areas, consisting of beachside apartments, local ‘barrio’ suburbs, the Andalusian townhouses of the historic quarter, and also the luxurious apartment complexes and penthouses of the area close to the beach on the western extension of town.
This is a noticeably refined section that offers a high degree of peace and privacy while being within walking distance of fine beaches, restaurants, cafés, shops, professional services, nightlife, parks and beach clubs, not to mention nearby spa hotels such as the Gran Melía Don Pepe and the famous Marbella Club and Puente Romano resort hotels. Having all of this, including schools and sports facilities, on your doorstep means being less dependent upon cars and opens up wonderful new lifestyle experiences.
You can still experience the nearby surroundings of Marbella, such as the Golf Valley in Nueva Andalucía, and the country club environments, nature and leisure resorts, but life in Marbella town adds a whole new range of options.
